Major Motion Picture
Presented by Springboard Performance's 2016 Fluid Festival
A glorious nightmare... of (fleeting hope) amid Big Brother surveillance. Its a magnificent piece of theatrical sleight of hand. Adrian Chamberlain, Times Colonist
Major Motion Picture explores timely themes of surveillance, otherness, propaganda and belief through eccentric and lawless characters. A hybrid performance language includes infrared technology and an on-stage surveillance system alongside Out Innerspace's trailblazing movement invention. 7 dancers fight for the theatre, losing and gaining the grounds for their power and identity. A mysterious third party is present in every conflict, teaching us how to desire, and leading us into patterns. Living in the wings, The Others hack into the theatre with wild attempts to steal the show and regain the stage as their own. With influences ranging from Charlie Chaplin to Die Antwoord, Orson Welles to Slavoj Zizek, the music of Bernard Herrmann meets urban underground and an original composition by Belgian producer Tristan Vloeberghs.
